PREAMB L E.
It is impossible to survey the existing state of
affairs between the different elasses in our com-
munity without deep emotion. The continual
encroachments upon the rights and privileges of
that class of men whom their peculiar circum-
stance deprive of self-protection as individuals,
against designing and unscrupulous parties, have
a debasing and demoralizing influence, which
demands an immediate union of effort in adopt-
ing measures of protection and reform.
